Example text

Together with the finding that gastrin induced proliferation in a COX2-dependent manner, these studies suggest that autocrine production of gastrin may be involved in the pathogenesis of Barrett’s esophagus, at least partly through induction of COX-2 [37]. These studies give credence to the proposal to use proton pump inhibitors in combination with COX-2 inhibitors as a chemopreventive strategy. Despite a wealth of evidence linking reflux and the development of Barrett’s esophagus summarized above, the molecular pathways involved are still largely unknown.

The risks were combined in a multiplicative manner, and among obese persons with recurrent reflux symptoms the odds ratio was 184 for EAC compared with lean persons without reflux. We then estimated the number needed to survey to detect one esophageal or cardia adenocarcinoma among men aged 50–79 years. 3% of men aged 50–79 years had reflux and BMI > 30 kg/m2. The number of persons needed to screen to detect one adenocarci- 23 noma varied from 2189 in the former stratum, to 594 in the latter. Thus, if 60 obese men aged 50–79 years with reflux symptoms are followed for 10 years, one esophageal or cardia adenocarcinoma will be observed.
